For this card I used Ballet Matilda from the DigiStamp Boutique. This seemed the obvious choice for a birthday girl who did quite a bit of ballet dancing when she was even younger than she is today, lol. I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and added a Papermania gem to the flower in her hair. IRL this is a very sparkly gem in vibrant turquoise green, a perfect match with the leaves on the PP, but unfortunatly this does not show in the picture.
The birthday sentiment in the punched circle is actually from a Raindrop Echo Design freebie that also includes an image in the middle, but I masked that part by drawing a circle over it in Word. I know how to make these circle sentiments myself, but this was much quicker, lol. The "lace" at the bottom came from a huge sheet that was wrapped around the roses my husband gave me for my birthday. I used my SN alcohol markers to change the colour from grass green to turquoise green to match the PP and applied some double-sided tape to be able to create the pleats. I also used a few circles cut from the same material as a background for my buttons.
Other materials used:
PP - First Edition, Spring Fling
Scalloped circle - Nestability
